My own journey of healing began in my early twenties. This experience inspired me to want to help others and gave me the conviction that no-one should have to suffer, when there is hope and help available. Over the years I have worked in both the U.S. and the Middle East, as well as here in Canada, experiencing different cultures and ways of being. As a result of my personal and professional experiences, I offer an eclectic, sensitive, personalized approach, based on your needs and issues with a commitment to providing an empathic, safe, caring, and respectful healing environment.

 
I have been fortunate in being able to help others for over 20 years now. There is hope, and help available, even if you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel…the light is there, but sometimes, the tunnel is curved.
